Toenail, 3.0 x 2.0 x 2.0 cm
Butte, Butte District, Silver Bow Co., Montana, USA
Very aesthetic, hexagonal bladed crystals resting attractively on a larger blade in the center, creating a very 3-dimensional specimen. It is complete and nearly pristine all around and displays 360-degrees. The individual crystals have beveled edges, striations, and a gray-black color that attractively complements the muted metallic luster. This is an excellent chalcocite from a classic and important locality for which the species seldom gets this good! very sharp! Note it is also not yet cleaned - it might brighten up with chemicals but I personally like the antique look. 3 x 2 x 2 cm
